All active university and university of applied sciences students are guaranteed to find an apartment in Lappeenranta.
The housing guarantee given by the City of Lappeenranta to new university and university of applied sciences students means that all university and university of applied sciences students actively seeking an apartment are guaranteed to find one in Lappeenranta.
By the housing guarantee, the City of Lappeenranta, the University of Technology and the Saimaa University of Applied Sciences want to assure people planning to start studies in Lappeenranta that finding an apartment will not be an issue for starting the studies, provided that you are seeking for an apartment actively and are ready to accept all options.
Housing is organised via the Lappeenranta Student Housing Foundation (LOAS), Lappeenrannan Asuntopalvelu Oy, the Student Union of LUT (LTKY) and the private sector. The aim is to ensure that no one is forced out of education because they can’t find a place to live.
LOAS fulfils its promise by giving priority in the summer and autumn application seasons to new university and university of applied sciences students who live outside Lappeenranta and by offering emergency accommodation services in cooperation with LTKY. LOAS is not alone responsible for fulfilling the promise; finding accommodation also requires active effort from the applicants themselves.
